Ziv Lahat is an illustrator, painter, lowbrow artist, cartoonist and fashion designer. At an early age, he was influenced by many cultures and that’s informed his art. Later, Ziv studied fashion design in Paris (ESMOD) and took part in exciting projects in the fashion world. Ziv designed his own shoes and collaborated with sneaker shops. He was featured in Styliste, Personal Shopper and Fashion Designer.

Ziv is influenced by the artistic genres and cultural scenes he has taken part in most of his life, like street art culture (Graffiti, Toys, Comics, Vinyl, Tags, Characters etc..), Kustom Kulture (50′s, hot rods, pinstriping, exotica), history, Ethnica, music (Ska, Reggae, Hip Hop, Psychobilly, Jazz, Rockabilly, Punk, Gothic, Tribal Music, etc.), tattoo culture, primitive art, lowbrow, surf, skate, and the Rastafari movement.

‘So What’s’ Ziv’s second name in the Graffiti/Street Art scene. He took this name from the Mighty and Legendary Miles Davis’ Kind Of Blue album. The song So What’s always playing in his head when he is drawing.

Ziv loves to create his own style with a lot of thought, cultural influence and good vibes…From Tiki to Psychobilly from Ska to Surf, etc.
